I'm resurrecting an old video that I made almost four years ago to show that quality productions are possible without a budget. Things to note about this production:

  • No tripod
  • No monopod
  • No slider
  • No motion stabilizer
  • No shoulder mount
  • No special light kit
  • No follow focus
  • and NO DSLR
This was all shot freehand with basic flood lights and umbrellas, and cut and colored in FCP. Music was granted gratis by Glassnote Records and Kobalt Music.

Stay tuned for my upcoming fashion films, even the ones shot on RED. ;)

The camera I used was a Canon XH-A1 with Letus Extreme 35mm adapter and Canon FD prime lenses.

Thanks everyone.

It looks great man, nicely done. What did you use for audio recording gear?

The only critiques I can say are that a lot of the subjects were dead center in the frame. Not a deal breaker, but the 16:9 frame really does look better when the subject is off set just a bit to one side or the other.

And then the ending was really abrupt.

two small, small details, but over all, very cool. And the lighting was really well done. You should be proud!

Thanks BrickR and Chas.

Chas -- I completely agree about the abrupt ending. It was the best I could do to tie everything together in under a minute. In the first three segments, I always made a transition to the next person by using a b-roll clip as a segment end/lead-in, but I even had to sacrifice one of those b-roll clips in the end of the last segment to keep the video to a minute. I've recognized this flaw since I first made the video!

As for audio, I have very, very limited experience with it. I don't know anything about proper mixing techniques or recording settings. This video's audio was recorded straight into the camcorder with a boomed Rode NTG-2 mic, and some background noise cleaned up in Soundtrack Pro. The furthest I go with mixing is making sure audio clip transitions are smooth through the use of crossfades, and keeping audio levels consistent. I know you're a professional audio mixer, so any advice is appreciated!

I really like those flares that people ad to videos. Especially the one at the beginning of your video 1 second in.

I am using Sony Vegas 11 Pro. Still trying to figure it out.
